Yeung Chow fried rice

"Yeung Chow Fried Rice" or "Yang Zhou Chao Fan" is a popular Guangdong style wok fried dish in most restaurants in North America and Hong Kong. The ingredients vary, but there are staple items like:

* hot cooked rice
* cooked shrimp
* scallions, chopped, including green ends
* eggs slightly stirred
* cabbage

Chinese barbecued pork or 'cha siu' is an essential ingredient in Yang Zhou Fried Rice. It is the barbecued pork that gives it its special sweetish flavour . Still, there have been attempts by people in Yangzhou to patent the dish.
